Rebecca Miller United States, 1995

Stacy Livitsanis's rating of the film Angela

A dark, gut-punching magic realist wonder. Candid look at a disturbed child's world. Would make a great double with Ann Turner's Celia (1988). From Miller's commentary: “I was especially interested in the theme of exaggerated responsibility that children have sometimes for bad things that happen in their lives… children feel both very powerful and also very responsible.”
